Written response: Decision-making

Summary of task

Students participated in a unit about making decisions in relation to issues and challenges that young people might face; for example, drugs, alcohol, or a friend they are worried about.

They were asked to write an evidence-based extended response in relation to a scenario.

Students were given a statement explaining the scenario and a list of suggestions to help focus their writing. They were also provided with a scaffold to help them with the structure of their paragraphs.

This assessment task relates to the focus areas: safety, alcohol and drugs, and mental health and wellbeing.

Achievement standard

By the end of Year 10, students critically analyse contextual factors that influence identities, relationships, decisions and behaviours. They analyse the impact attitudes and beliefs about diversity have on community connection and wellbeing. They evaluate the outcomes of emotional responses to different situations. Students access, synthesise and apply health information from credible sources to propose and justify responses to health situations. Students propose and evaluate interventions to improve fitness and physical activity levels in their communities. They examine the role physical activity has played historically in defining cultures and cultural identities.

Students demonstrate leadership, fair play and cooperation across a range of movement and health contexts. They apply decision-making and problem-solving skills when taking action to enhance their own and others’ health, safety and wellbeing. They apply and transfer movement concepts and strategies to new and challenging movement situations. They apply criteria to make judgements about and refine their own and others’ specialised movement skills and movement performances. They work collaboratively to design and apply solutions to movement challenges.
